Welcome to The Onco.com Community. Prostate cancer is staged as low risk, intermediate risk, and high risk.
- For low-risk patient’s surgery with or without radiation is recommended.
- For intermediate-risk patients, surgery or radiation treatment with short course hormonal therapy is recommended.
- For high-risk patients, Radiation treatment with long-term hormonal therapy is recommended.
- For stage IV disease, hormonal therapy, and palliative care are offered.
Depending on the stage of cancer and other additional patient-centric factors, an ideal treatment plan is charted out for the patient. It's advisable to get a thorough consultation from your oncologist and take this further. Additionally, you can touch base with our oncologists by starting your case on www.onco.com
